Mexico 5 Centavos  1905 to 1914
Mexico 5 Centavos 1905 to 1914

You are correct, Randy. 1905 is one of the *better dates* for Mexican 5 centavos. 1909 is a *somewhat better date* than most of the dates in the series.

The coin in our picture comes from top-rated eBay seller MrPotatoHeadd and, like many of Mr. PH's coins, is in beautiful numismatic (coin collector) condition. As a fully uncirculated coin dated 1905, this piece sells for several $100 US dollars. But, if it were worn, the value would go way down to about $10. So you see, condition makes all the difference in a 1905 5 centavos. An average circulated coin catalogs at the $20 mark.

Here are typical catalog values for the *common date* 5 centavos:

worn: $1 US dollar catalog value
average circulated: $5
well preserved: $30
fully uncirculated: $150

To convert these catalog values to actual buy and sell values, use the information from our Important Terminology page (link at upper left).

CoinQuest thanks mrpotatoheadd for use of their coin photo. It is a beauty!
